Wear a mask
As we are well aware from old to young, the world is in the midst of a pandemic. COVID-19 is most assuredly real. The case numbers in Ohio and many other states are on the rise. The miracle has not yet arrived. Nor has a vaccine.
Repeatedly, physicians, health care professionals, governors and others have requested people to stay socially distant, wear a mask, and wash your hands. That seems simple enough to me. Granted, should you see me on the bike path walking, I have not been wearing a mask. When I am grocery shopping, going to a store, entering a restaurant for takeout, doing anything inside a building, I wear a mask.
It is estimated that tens of thousands of lives could be spared by wearing a mask. Health Care Professionals are not the only ones capable of saving lives. Every one of us can be on the saving lives team. The saving lives team is not Democrat, Republican or Independent.
Wearing a mask may save your family member, your friend, an acquaintance or someone you pass and do not know. Indeed, the most pro-life action we all can currently do is to wear a mask.
Please join the saving lives team.
